Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Leeks and Peas

Stuffed into winter squash of any type, this makes a great main dish for a festive meal. Or, simply serve on its own for a colorful and nourishing side dish. Fresh sage leaves are easy to find this time of year in the produce section of well-stocked supermarkets.

Bryanna’s Vegan Pumpkin Pie

I don’t like pumpkin pie made with tofu-no one ever suspects this one doesn’t have eggs. One caution-MAKE THIS THE DAY BEFORE SERVING. It’s needs a day to set really well, I find. This is a spicy filling.

Chocolate Chanukkah Cookies

This recipe comes from the mother of a friend of mine that makes these cookies every year. They are lower in fat than more traditional cookies are always quickly gobbled up. I like using Star of David cutters, but gelt or dreidel cutters also work great. These cookies can also be frosted with royal icing or glazed.

Pumpkin Pie (no Tofu)

I don’t like pumpkin pies with tofu for some reason, so I had to search for a good recipe without it. This one is great! I don’t remember where I found it, but I use it every year, and it is never turned down! I don’t like pie crust (I often just make the filling!), so I am sorry I cannot offer a good ff crust recipe. I have tried cutting out all of the sugar and using more maple syrup, which actually works fine, but I don’t remember the measurements I used…if you want a refined-sugar-free pumpkin pie, it can be done, though! Sorry I cannot be more exact. If I make it again this year, I’ll post the exact amounts to the list.

Mince “Meat” Pie

Here’s one that I used long ago. It’s from the November 1991 issue of Vegetarian Times, and until now it’s been in a binder with a lot of old recipes. I remember making it several times and liking it and then passing it along to my non-vegetarian father when he wanted to use up a lot of the citrus fruit he grows. He loved it, too.

Pumpkin Pie Wontons

These dessert wontons are a great way to serve pumpkin pie individually. Look for packaged wonton wrappers in Asian grocery stores. Be careful–many of them are not vegan.

Christmas Bread, Panettone-style

As promised I’m reporting on my weekend in the kitchen. I was aiming for a low-fat vegan panettone, but I had forgotten to buy the essential aniseed! Here’s what I made and it’s pretty darn good. I think I’ll call it PaneCathy.

    • Oil-Free Baked Portobello Fries
      Do you know why vegan cooks are so creative? I think it’s because we’re constantly being tempted by interesting dishes on restaurant menus that are “vegan except for.” You know, the chickpea appetizer that is vegan–except for chicken broth. Or the hash browns that are vegan–except they’re cooked on a griddle alongside bacon. Or the portobello fries […]

    • No Place Like Home
      From the time I was a little girl, the plants and trees growing around my house have always been a part of what makes my house feel like home. In my childhood, it was my father’s pomegranate tree outside my bedroom window, and the specially grafted fruit tree in our backyard, lovingly created by Mr. […]
